BECOME A PILOT

The integrated pilot program at PFA takes just two years to complete and the newly qualified pilots will have all the certificates they need to start a career within an airline. The program requires motivation and dedication, and students are challenged both on their efforts and attitudes from the first day of school to prepare them for a career as a pilot.

Course plan

At the very first day of the pilot program you will receive a uniform and an iPad which contain the total syllabus. The program starts off with 8 months of theoretical education in ATPL (A). Then the students will have about 220 flight-and simulator hours before they must pass a skill test conducted by the Civil Aviation Authority. The students will then receive an international pilot certificate (EASA CPL (A) IR ME with frozen ATPL (A)) and are ready to start their career as airline pilots.

Theory

During the pilot program, students will be educated in 12 subjects and sit through 14 exams. It is 750 hours in the classroom with 6 hours of teaching each day. All teaching is conducted in English.

Flight training

Students start flight training in a single-engine Diamond DA40NG before they advance to a multi-engine Diamond DA42 simulator and Diamond DA42 aircraft. In the last semester, students learn how to operate bigger aircraft in the school’s advanced Boeing 737 simulator.
